Your Customers Are Mobile-Ready…Are You?
Mobile Website Design and Mobile Marketing
What happens when a mobile user browses to your site? Mobile browsers do not render 99% of web pages in the same manner as a PC browser. And so, your users might see a meaningless jumble of images and text, with no visible navigation; Don’t expect to turn one of these millions of mobile browsing customers into a sale.
When we first wrote this page in 2008, we were way ahead of the curve. Now, the move to mobile is even more compelling.
The numbers of mobile users continue to increase with each passing month. We typically see our clients with a percentage of mobile users between 5% and 10% of total website visitors, although a few of our clients have 30% of their website traffic originate from mobile devices.

The Mobile User: High Income, Decision Maker, Ready to Buy
The number of web pages served in the US to mobile browsers (PDAs, phones, handhelds, etc.) is expected to soon reach 1% of all internet pages served. Naturally, mobile browsers tend to be higher income and represent a higher percentage of business decision-makers than your average browser. Also, mobile browsers tend to be closer to a purchase point: in a car looking for a product, or traveling, etc.
The number of mobile searches, and mobile browser pages requested is rising quickly. Google is already anticipating a future where mobile users will make up a significant percentage of web traffic.
